With direction and musical staging by Joe Calarco, the world premiere will officially open Oct. 5; performances will continue through Oct. 30.

The seven-member cast will comprise Steve French as Bass, Celisse Henderson as Alto/Regina, Hannah Laird as Soprano/Ali, Chesney Snow as Boxman, Graham Stevens as Baritone/Nate, Denise Summerford as Mezzo/Jane and Tommar Wilson as Tenor/Trent.

In Transit features book, music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez, James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth. "In this fresh take on the modern musical," press note state, "seven performers take on multiple roles and create every note with their own voices for a rich theatrical experience unlike anything you've ever seen (or heard) on stage before. Inspired by the rhythms and sounds of life on the subway, In Transit follows an aspiring actress, a fledgling financier, a street-savvy beatboxer, a cab driver, and others as they find their way in New York City. The result is a vivid tapestry of characters and music in the City that never stands still."

59E59 Theaters are located in Manhattan at 59 East 59th Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 279-4200. For more information, visit primarystages.com.
